Debian :: Unable To Access Ntfs Partition?

May 21, 2010

I recently formated my harddrive and instead of theld fat32 partition for windows partition I used ntfs. I am mounting this partition in /media/windows in debian linux. But it shows a cross (x) symbol above the folder and says I don't have the permission to access it. the permission on the folder is (drwx_ _ _ _ _ _ ) and it is owned by root. So I changed it to my user name -- sid by doing the followingsudo chown -R sid:sid /media/windowsHere are my questions1) Now it allows me to access the folders but all the files like pdf or photos have a cross on right top corner and it says access denied. Is this because of ntfs since with fat32 I didn't have this problem.

2) Also I have a /data (ext4) partiton which is a common partition for datafiles between Ubuntu and Debian. It has the permission -- drwxr_xr_x . I am trying to write to this partition and save files but it doesnot allow me to do it. do I have to make chmod 777 to do that?3) How do I make sure that both windows and /data partition are writable right from the beginning at the boot time.

May 8, 2010

I was trying to resize a NTFS partition using GParted and trying to enlarge it using some unallocated space (about 400 or 500 MB unallocated space) but something went wrong and now I am unable to access the NTFS partition. The unallocated space is still there.The error details are reported at the bottom of this mail, plus the content of fstab and mtab.Do you have any idea on what caused the error and how to recover the partition?

Ubuntu :: How Can I Access NTFS Partition

Jan 1, 2010

I have dual-boot XP/Karmic.I have an external HDD for backup. One partition is NTFS for the XP stuff. The second partition is ext4.I was practicing with the SystemRestoreCD, which provides a Linux root console.I can create and delete directories on the ext4 partition, but not on the NTFS partition. The error message says "read-only file system".I tried to use chmod and chown to change permissions and owner.I assumed that as root, I could do anything.How can I access the NTFS partition, and do anything that I need to do?All my current XP stuff on the HDD was backed up from within XP, using standard software (Cobian Backup), and normal user privileges. But I want to practice for when my XP OS is damaged.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Access Ntfs Partition After 10.04 Upgrade?

Apr 30, 2010

I have a partition on my hard drive that i use for documents. In 9.10 i would just click on places, and then on the partition name. It would ask for my password and i would be able to access the files. I just upgraded to 10.04 and first off i do not see the partition at all. I navigated to filesystem>media and found my partition but i has a gray X on it. I did gksu nautilus and when i access the folder, there is nothing inside.

I tried to search around for a way to access my windows partition from within Linux. I was unable to mount the same using "mount" command. I read of a tool "ntfs-config" as well, this too didn't work for me.

Please share if anyone out there has an idea on how we can access the windows partition (NTFS) from within Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick.

Installation :: Editing Fstab To Allow RW Access For All Users To A NTFS Partition

Mar 14, 2009

Sometimes Linux just make you want to throw the PC out of the window, and get a new one with WINDOWS on it...Having only just "got" the idea that there are a nunber of ways of issuing chmod, I now find that there is yet another when in the fstab file. It is an easygoogle to find out a workaround to make this drive RW, but doing that way one does not learn what is actually happening.how do I find out UID and GID? fmask and dmask, how do I find out what the current settings mean, and what they should be to allow RW access for various groups/users or for everyone?

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD±RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Freeze (hang) Ntfs Partition Read Write Access?

Jun 4, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit desktop version on ext4 partition without swap. I have maximus iv extreme motherboard with 8 Gbytes RAM. Using 3 internal ntfs formatted hard drives and 3 external ntfs usb 2.0 hard drives.When I am trying to copy or move files FROM or TO any ntfs partiton it is 90 percent chance it is going to freeze.For copy/moving files I am using krusader run as ROOT or as user without root privilege or Nautilus as user without root privilege. It wasn't possible to switch to another terminal - it simply does not react on keyboard or mouse input and only hard reset is possible (scares me because of ntfs disks)From this point of view I have suspicious on ntfs driver but:I am completely beginner in linux and I am looking for help to navigate me how to investigate to find what is causing the problem eventually to solve it?

According to my experience it seems to does not matter if hard disk is internal or external connected through SATA II or SATA III or USB 2.0. I have tried to manipulate with ntfspartitions through the vmware or virualbox or truecrypt software or just do a simplecopy/move files - it have has always the same results - freeze. There is not possible to say how long it is going to work properly and when it is going to freeze - sometimes it's working hour, sometimes it's working couple of seconds - no matter if it is read or write operation/s within ntfs partition.

General :: Unable To Restore Backup On NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

I used Ping Linux 8 months ago to create a ghost-like image of my primary partition. (Windows 7 on NTFS) The image is on the second partition of my hard drive (Western Digital 250 gig). I need to restore now, but Ping is unable to mount the volume. In fact, it will not mount any volume or perform any new backup. I made sure nothing has changed in Bios options since I created the backup. Does this imply that is not the appropriate tool to work on NTFS system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Use NTFS Partition In Windows 7 64 Bits And GPT Secondary Table Moved

May 22, 2010

I have a 6TB external eSata bay (Lacie BigQuadra). I made a GPT table with only one big ext4 partition. All was ok. I resized the ext4 partition and I created a 1TB NTFS partition. I can use it on Kubuntu but Windows 7 tell me the partition is not formated. When I go back to Kubuntu, parted tell me that the secondary GPT table is not at the end of the disk and tell me it's probably an other OS that thinks the disk is smaller that its real size. It seems Windows 7 thinks the disk size is 2 TB (and modify automaticaly the GPT table and create a secondary GPT table on the middle of the disk).

What can I do to make my NTFS partition visible in Windows 7? What can I do to prevent Windows 7 to move the secondary partition table on the middle of the disk and to modify the primary GPT table ?

Debian :: Mount NTFS Partition At Startup?

Nov 25, 2015

I just installed Debian 8.2 (Jessie). I couldn't find the way to mount the Windows 7 partition, at installation time.

ÂżCould you tell me how can I mount NTFS partitions in order that they be mounted at boot time and can be accessed (read and write) by any user?

I know, I should edit "/etc/fstab" file. But I don´t know very well how to modify it.

And... ÂżShould I create the mount point directory, also?

Debian :: Hget Ntfs Partitions To Ext4fs / Partition

Aug 26, 2011

I helped with the installation and put a / filesystem of around 20 GB and a /home partition of around 50 GB. He's a gaming freak and and installed lot of games in the last few days so running out of hdd space and he asked if there was a way he could take one of the ntfs partitions out and extend the / partition filesystem from 90 GB to say 220 GB. (The NTFS partition is around 100 GB).

Now one way would be to do everything (again) from scratch and put the filesystem as an lvm, another alternative googling gave me was to use gparted Live CD and extend the / filesystem . The downer seems to be that its possible gparted would mess up other partitions and realign stuff. At least that's what few of the websites I looked up and few people I talked on IRC spoke to me.

Debian :: Using The Same NTFS Partition For Linux And Windows Files

Apr 15, 2015

I have installed Debian as a second OS alongside Win XP, and now I have Win XP on C drive (if viewed from XP), NTFS, my data files (mainly texts and graphics) on D drive (NTSF), and Debian on ext3. Debian sees and opens files on D.

1. If I read-write from-on this D partition from both OSes, is there a chance the data will be corrupted?
2. If I open a Windows-created TXT, GIF, JPG, HTML or other not-proprietary format file from Debian, edit it and save (just SAVE, not SAVE AS) - will this file remain readable from Windows?
